Donald has been a vigorous print maker. Especially during 1970's, his collagraph prints were extremely popular and he invested much effort and time to develop his unique style. Donald's book Collagraph Printmaking (1975) describes this kind of art in detail and stirs creativity in each of us. He seldom prints these days, as the proccess is very labour intense. He still does make original New Year's cards, and those are linocuts. And his style remains the same: with a strong sense for composition and a dramatic balance between darkness and light.

Donald is very technically skilled and admires technology and machinery. Trains are a big love of his, beside ships. This is a train triptych print he has made in 1968 from found objects. He still has the can full of buttons, coins and different parts used in this print. Many Stoltenberg's colagraph prints resemble the Steampunk genre.





This is Don's typical colagraph print, Shipyard made in 1977. Donald is a structuralist. He loves views looking through beams, rods, with a strong perspective and play of light. Anything technical is perfect. His interests are well captured in a single sentence he wrote to Paul Farkas in 2007, asking him to collaborate on series of photographs of the St. Vitus cathedral in Prague: "I like views looking up giving angular perspective and in sun with some strong shadows..."
